Another Ugandan University Student jailed for ‘dating’ a Female Legislator.
Central Uganda – Buganda Road Court has charged James Omara, a computer science student at Kampala International University who is accused of dating Omoro district Woman Member of Parliament,Catherine Lamwaka through sending her a Valentine’s Day message early this year.
Omara was last week arrested by Parliamentary police after being sued for offensive communication and appeared in court on Thursday before being remanded to Luzira Prison until today, April 17.
The 23-year-old, a 3rd year student was remanded after pledging guilty to the charges.
According to the charge sheet, “Happy Valentines My MP” is one of the three messages quoted by the legislator in her legal suit. “Why are you so desperate to talk to me now, continue driving” was another message sent to her by the accused.
Omara’s narrative comes when a YMCA Institute student Brian Isiko is still battling a case of doing the same to Kabarole Woman Member of Parliament Sylvia Rwabwogo whom he sent love songs and romantic messages.
Court is today expected to hear Omara’s bail application.
